3:02am
stolen important data from hundred target. they beefed up the military and hacking capabilities. should we be cutting ours? >> steve: more good nice, gas prices got hiked up for the 33rd day in a row. prices continue to soar, washington continues to stay silent. when can we expect in relief i ask. eric bombing. >> eric: if s your gun stored in a safe place? the new law that let's cops search legal gun owners who haven't broken any laws. fox and friends starts right now. >> gretchen: brian is extending his holiday weekend for another day. we have eric bombing sitting here. >> steve: can you believe it.
3:03am
a former oil trader on the couch and first, let's start with fox news alert. >> gretchen: major cyber security, a series of hacking attacks against the united states. heather joins us live with more. >> reporter: good morning to you. these are the startling findings in a new report that has just been released. the 74-page report says 141 major hacking attempts have been traced back to a secret group that is linked back to the china's military. the organizations include energy arrow space companies and also itel communications firm, blueprints and other sensitive documents were stolen from those companies. they say the hacking goes back to 2006. now there is also reportedly a memo from a chinese telecommunications company that
3:04am
admits it provided links for the sole purpose of hacking. the wall street times says they were hacked but china had is s denying the report and denying the alleged fact that it's military has any involvement with the hacking. both democrats and republicans in washington are now demanding more action on this. they say that china's hackers pose a huge national security risk. they say they released the report because it's time to acknowledge the serious threat that is posed by china and to help security firms crackdown on the hacking. we'll continue tracking this for you. back to you for now. >> eric: the evidence they've got is damning. they have been able to trace 140 hacks to the army building in shanghai. so as we continue looks like we're on the precipice and gutting our military. what is china doing they are
3:05am
trying to destroy us. is this a good time to be doing the sequester thing? >> gretchen: where are our computer experts. china seems to be pretty good at this and one way to take down america is get in our computer systems. >> eric: this is we talked about it on and on. this is new battle front. the cyber warfare and we need to beef up on that front. didn't china hacked e hack in the pentagon a couple years. >> you have to figure the united states is doing that, as well. if you remember back in the last year, a book was revealing the that a virus that we developed that was responsible for essentially screwing up iran's nuclear program but they are after us. >> gretchen: brand-new video,
3:06am
26-year-old cried and judge charged him with a premeditated murder of his model girlfriend. hundreds of miles away reeva steenkamp was laid to rest in an emotional ceremony. >> we're going to keep things close we remember about my sister and try to continue with the things that she tried to make a success. we'll misser. >> gretchen: meantime, oakley has suspended a contract with pistorius and nike says he has no plans of using him in future ad campaigns. >> drew peter so often will fight for a new trial. they already going to argue that the former lawyer did such a terrible job during thinks trial last year it led to a
3:07am
conviction. stenk will be next. he faces up to 60 years behind bars. >> engine room that crippled the carnival ship triumph and reveals that it was leak that sparked those flames. so far two people have filed suit against carnival including one woman that suffered severe dehydration. overnight the united arab emirate signed a new deal, to help the nation boost capabilities and iran is also expanding drone technology. they say the predator drones will not be outfitted for weapons capability but only used for recognizance. those are the headlines this morning. let's tell them about the big secret. we will. for the 33rd day gas prices at
3:08am
the pump have risen. keep in mind, eric used to be an oil trader. here is the national gas average right now. 3.74. let's take a look how gas has climbed over the last 33 days. it started at 3.29 and now it's at 3.74. eric they say in january and february traditionally the refineries shut down for maintenance and stuff like that. this time they are factoring in super storm sandy. i. >> i will tell you go through the march and april may driving season. this is the highest price going into that season. it always rises during seasonal demand. refineries do what they called turnaround. it has to shut down completely and they have to clean it up and change the mixes and bring in crude oil in and get a gasoline mix and some other things on the backside. they have to put in additives.
3:09am
they have to increase the way the oil is actually distilled or refined. it cost a lot of money to do that. there is a supply that comes off the market. this is the highest price i have ever seen this time of year. if it's only $4 a gallon in february, this en you have two months to driving season and you could see a $5 east coast and $6 on the west coast. i haven't seen this in 23 years. >> you are starting from a higher pointed. this is something i have been talking about for years. it was not a big issue in the election unbelievably so. but we're used to a new normal of gas prices. new normal of over 3.50, over 3.75 and now you are starting from a base that is that high. you probably will see 5 and $6.
3:10am
>> it wouldn't be a new normal if there was republican in the white house, when george w. bush every nightly news opened up the price of gas killing us. charles krauthammer talked a little bit about the high price of gasoline ande pipeline and who is going to wind up with the canadian oil. bad news. >> the keystone issue is the most open and shut case i have ever seen, not only will it reduce our dependence on higo chavez but it would be insult to slam the door on canada but refusing the pipeline and not building it would have absolutely zero effect on the environment. the canadians have stumbled on the largest reserve of shale oil around. they are not going to keep it in the ground. it's going to go to china. they have said so if we don't
3:11am
import it. >> rather than getting oil from the north. >> here is what the left want you to believe. that oil is going to come down and environmental disaster on the way down and then when it gets here we're going to ship the oil someplace else. the case 65% of that price of gas is crude oil price. if you increase oil prices, the refiners, higher supplies will bring the price down. it will provide accessibility when refiners need. prices will come down. the left will also tell you the environmental impacts are massive. here is the thing. i think president obama will sign this thing over but think everything he does has some political capital attached it to. maybe it's some sort of cap and trade type of negotiations going on.
3:12am
>>. >> regardless of what happens. >> capital before the election before he denied having it go through. if he now says he is going pass it people will know people that were against it was for political gain. let's talk about something else on gun laws in the face of these major shootings. now in the state of washington, could it be in the law there, they have accidentally included a provision that would allow police to search the homes of assault rifle owners. apparently it does have a provision that says in order to possess a assault weapon on the effective date of this section, they are safely and secure the assault weapon. sheriff in the county can conducting an inspection to ensure compliance with the subsection. why is it interesting. the sheriff could come to the us on house and many people are concerned about that.
3:13am
why the story is so important because there is a liberal democrat in washington state who is against this even though he normally would not be. i think this is very i wanted to go pointed out. because oftentimes this discussion is right or left. now you have somebody who is actually looking at the law and having an open mind and saying maybe this isn't the right way to take this. >> home inspections with no warrants is very orwellian. that is why when they are talking about background checks, background checks may lead to a national registration, national registration leads to, i am from the sheriff's department. we want to see where consider guns are. >> i'm fairly certain it's unconstitutional. the chief bill says it's probably unconstitutional. >> gretchen: they never read the bill and it's only 8 pages long.
3:14am
if you are going to have people who are going to talking about left and right, if you are going to have to people come out and say automatically for something because that is what my party says before they actually read the bill that is problematic and this is only eight pages, now this guy is maybe i'm not for that exact provision, i didn't read the bill. >> and they are blaming on named staff members. that is a good one. >> 12 minutes after the hour and experts keep telling us to sleep eight hours each night but what happens if you ignore their advice. wait until you see what fewer eight hours is doing to your party. >> gretchen: they fought for their country and higher honors for fighting with the remote control. there is something that veterans may not be too pleased with. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪

3:19am
administration approved. former navy seal brandon web and jack murphy author of a new book "benghazi, the definitive report." you say that john brennan essentially was running a war out of the white house? >> yeah, that is correct. he was authorized to clear these operations inside libya to go in there and destroy weapons and also target high value targets. >> steve: we're talking about a secret war run out of the white house. who gave them the authority? >> it had to be delegated from the president down to john brennan. >> steve: so the war was this. guys, secret guys, special operators, go into libya and get the guns, right? >> i think the main issue is when you have such a small geographic area and you have these types of units conducting the operations and keeping
3:20am
people in a communication vacuum it becomes a problem and c.i.a. doesn't realize what they are doing. >> steve: so what you are suggesting in your book is that the c.i.a. didn't know about the secret war and also ambassador stevens didn't know about the war. you got the special operators coming over with the secret war run by the white house and they essentially kicked a hornets nest. >> the problem is you get the turf wars and different agencies not communicating with each other. that is why we ended up in 9/11 situation. all the pieces of the puzzle are there but no one put them together because no one is talking to each other. >> steve: you suggest what happened those guys at consulate were sitting ducks. we had been operating a secret operation trying to grab up the guns from khadafy's regime and those guys were caught in the
3:21am
crossfire because they didn't know about the secret operation? >> they were grabbing up the guns from the militias that were taken during the civil war by the khadafy regime but there are operations going on and c.i.a. personnel and state department personnel on the ground didn't have visibility and couldn't have known there would be rotation immigration or blow back. stevens was left in the lurch, regardless of the communication issues, the state department and security posture toor was not what it should have been. the guys in benghazi were screaming for security and they didn't get the support from the state department. >> steve: where is the outrage? >> the accountability, it's one of the main mitigating factors why jack and i wanted to write the book. the american people deserve to hear the truth and decide who should be held accountable. >> steve: who would be held accountable for this? >> somebody in the administration has to stand up and take responsibility and where are the consequences?
3:22am

hours is what you need. the importance of this is because you really need to get into the deep sleep or the rem sleep. that is when basically all the things you don't do during the day while you are sleeping body is going to repair and all the inflammation. so six to seven hours of sleep is ideal and try to get it. if you are getting up every two hours, that doesn't count. >> eric: so if you are like us us, you get five hours and you are at risk. >> big news is cardiovascular disease and a lot of studies are showing that if you get less than six hours of sleep you are at risk double. there is still reactive protein which is inflammation. it's heart disease and stroke is up. this is really important. over the years we've talked

3:49am
lively discussion, it's an issue that is complicated. if i come to new york city, you see mentally ill people walking on the streets many of them homeless and its dire situation. you say that rounding them up and rescuing is unconstitutional? >> it's clearly unconstitutional because the constitution says the only way i can arrest someone if you see them committing a crime or a probable cause to believe they have committed, not are going to commit but have committed a crime. in the case of someone who is mentally ill, mental illness is a range and terminology used to apply to a range of deficiencies it could be mild or severe only those who are mentally ill and in imminent danger of harm to themselves and others can be in the category of candidates for arrest. anything short of that the person cannot be arrested without an order from a judge. >> gretchen: what happened here in the last couple of months, two subway attacks where they
3:50am
pushed innocent people out on the tracks and they died. how do you know what that mentally ill person is. how can a police officer gauge that whether she or she is walking down street and know whether they are to the point you are describing? >> they can't. it's not their job to do so. if a person has been adjudicated a danger to themselves and others and is not incarcerated, that is one thing but a cop looking at somebody, saying i think you are crazy and i think you are going to push somebody into the path of the subway train and therefore i'm going arrest i, that is not permissible under our system. we do not have a system of government that lets the government predicted who is going to do the wrong thing and arrest them before they do it. the police should be there to keep people safe. mta should oy platforms that are safe. you can't arrest groups of

important data from over 100 u.s. targets. while china beefs up their military, should we really be cutting ours at the same time? >> eric: why we were sleeping, gas prices spiked again. that's 33 days in a row, while price continue to soar, why is washington staying silent? >> steve: no kidding. and about to eat breakfast? put down the spoon of the the yogurt could be a breakfast bomb instead of a breakfast boost. what you need to know before you eat your breakfast. we've got "fox & friends" hour two for tuesday starts right now >> gretchen: good morning, everybody. >> steve: the good news is, when we tell you to put down your spoon, we will have the answers for you within 20 minutes on what you should be eating for breakfast. >> eric: yogurt is not good now? >> gretchen: i cheated to look at the list 'cause i'm doing the

4:04am
telecommunications company admitted that it provided communication links for the sole purpose of hack. the "wall street journal" and the "new york times" in the last few weeks have both admitted that they were hacked and say that all signs point to chinese hackers. in a statement, it's said the report, quote, it's time to acknowledge the threat is originating in china and we wanted to do our part to arm and prepare security professionals to combat that threat effectively. china's rejecting the report, saying its military has nothing to do with that hacking. the country says that the report is based on groundless accusations. both republicans and democrats in washington have been demanding more action and say the hackers pose a significant national security risk. we'll keep following this important story for you. but that is what we have this morning. back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> steve: remember after the lights went out at the super bowl, there was some experts who said, you know, don't be it wasd the president of the united
4:05am
states in the state of the union address addressed cyber security. it's really important because china is out to get our secrets and shut us down. >> gretchen: obviously congress is way behind the eight ball on trying to keep up with the technology because it changes at a moment's notice. we all know to pass any kind of legislation takes decades. now to another developing story, it seems there is little chance oscar pistorius will be granted bail. the court is back in session. we're waiting on a ruling from the judge who implied he will not be lenient. the track star arrived in court this morning before a judge charged him with the premeditated murder of his model girlfriend. hundreds of miles away, the very sad scene here, reeva was laid to rest in an emotional and private ceremony. >> in the words of the pastor this morning indicated that we are to keep reeva in our hearts
4:06am
forever and by her passing away, it's actually can make a change in the lives of many people. >> gretchen: meantime, oakley has now suspended its contract with pistorius and nike says it has no plans to use him in future ad campaigns. like something out of a movie, eight men pull off a daring multi million dollar jewelry heist in an airport in brussels. they cut a hole in the security fence, drove up to a swiss plane about to take off. they stole $50 million worth of diamonds from the cargo hold and drove off. right now there is no sign of the thieves or the jewels. in a few hours, drew peterson could be sentenced for murdering his third wife, kathleen savio. his lawyers will fight for a new trial and argue his former lawyer did such a terrible job last year, that it led to his conviction. if a new trial is denied, sentencing will be next and he could face up to 60 years behind

4:08am
stuart varney was on our program a couple of days ago and he said this is the highest -- this was four or five days ago, highest price for february gas in history and now we're up four or five cents from that. >> eric: sure. seasonally it goes down in the winter. peak demand starts in april. it's never risen from such a high starting point before. one of the solutions to the high gas price? pick one grade of gasoline. right now there are 100 separate grades. east coast blend, west coast blend. >> steve: why do they do that? environmental, right? >> eric: county laws. forget state laws. it breaks down by county at some point. sometimes there will be a county with excess gas and another county has a shortage and can't ship it across the line because of environmental reasons. pick one grade, pick one seasonal grade if you want and you will drop gasoline prices snatch would it hurt. >> gretchen: was that in your
4:09am
secret envelope? remember when you had that secret envelope for president obama and you wanted him to call the red phone. >> eric: how ridiculous is it when part of the city of chicago is 5.50 a gallon and the county next door is 4.75 a gallon? that is absolute insanity because of location. >> gretchen: on the east coast it's all high no matter where you go. >> steve: one of the things about the east coast is we've got east coast refinery which is are traditionally down in january and february because these are the months when people take fewer trips. but then you factor in super storm sandy, some of the disruption still linger there. so we've got that kind of refinishry hangover. charles krauthammer says not only -- he brings up keystone pipeline. simple economics, supply and demand. the more supply you've got, the lower the price. he brings up, and i know we were just talking about china with burger king hacking, they weren't probably involved -- and also with the hacking into all sorts of u.s. computers, he says now china wants our gas, too.
4:10am
>> the keystone issue is the most open and shut case i have ever seen. not only will it reduce our dependence on hugo chavez and the middle east, we'd get it from canada and not only would it be an insult if we slammed the door on dan, our closest ally, but refusing the pipeline or not building it would have absolutely zero effect on the environment. the canadians have stumbled on the largest reserve of shale oil around. they are the saudi arabia of shale. they are not going to keep it in the ground if we don't import it. it will go to china. they have said to. >> gretchen: they're going to sell it. if the u.s. doesn't do it, most likely it will go to china. these drones made here in the united states, are they going to go global? the u.a.e., country near iran and saudi arabia, they're going to spend $200 million now on these u.s.-made drones to expand their military and to protect themselves against iran.
4:11am
so the question this morning is, is that a good idea? apparently they're not going to be fit for bombs and that sort of thing. they're only going to be used for surveillance. that's what the story is right now. >> eric: this is one of the worst ideas we've ever, ever done. >> gretchen: why? >> eric: this is our technology. here is why, if you're worried about iran, we have a military base in the united emirates. you put our own drones. let's operate them ourselves. let's not give them to united emirates. let's say we'll hold on to them. it's our technology. i don't want to sell it or give it to them. i just want it inform this is all part of a $1.4 billion military contract with the u.a.e. what's interesting, iran has already got one of our drones, at least one of our drones because one went down and they got it and they say they've actually got a couple of them. eric and i were talking about
4:12am
this, because this technology is so valuable to the united states, and whether it's a drone or a super duper fighter plane, wouldn't it be great if the united states had a kill switch on it so that they could never use something like that on us? >> eric: it's a great idea. >> steve: it would be. >> gretchen: hour would you know? -- how would you know? >> eric: we would invent it. >> gretchen: how would you know when they would be about to do that? >> steve: you have detection systems in place. >> eric: if we were smart, we would sell it to them, but have abscess to what intel they're gaining. >> gretchen: what if they're only for surveillance and they can't put any sort of weaponry on them, wouldn't it be good to stimulate the economy? >> eric: why don't they do it then? why don't they develop their own drone? >> gretchen: they're a small country. i don't know. >> eric: we're going to make a profit f there is any profit, is there profits? obviously we're doing this as a favor to the uae? >> steve: it doesn't create jobs
4:13am
here in america for these contractors. >> gretchen: all right. let us know what you think. let us know if you think that's good or bad idea. >> steve: i think kill switch would be a good idea. just think of how many times people have used our weapons on us in the field of battle. >> eric: exactly. >> steve: turn the switch. hit the switch at langley. 11 minutes after the hour. don't try this at home. that's a car. yes, a car, doing a back flip. one of the coolest stunts ever caught on camera. wait a minute. wait a minute. what happens? is it a special effect? no. >> gretchen: the president wants free preschool for all. he said so in the union. the only problem is a new government reports the $8 billion program isn't working or wouldn't work? stuart varney has all the numbers. get out your calculator, stu. >> president obama visited a decatur, georgia classroom the other day to push his universal

4:19am
start program has no clear impact on language and literacy while the children are in head start. plus, there is no noticeable effect on these children after third grade. so if there is any improvement while they're in head start, it doesn't last after third grade. so why are we planning to expand at significant cost, an expensive program that's under fire? why are we doing that? >> steve: well, the president just made the case, that if we give these youngsters the tools going forward, they will have better lives. but you've painted a picture where that doesn't sound necessarily true. >> the counter argument is we can't afford this, regardless of the success of head start. >> steve: where would the $9,000 her kid come from? >> i believe the president wants to tax the rich. he will tax the rich for everything. he will tax the rich for this. it is really an entitlement program. it is a new entitlement program. universal preschool, that is an entitlement. you know that the cost will

4:34am
we had both the authors on this program earlier talking about the consequences of not telling the c.i.a., nor ambassador seasons that there was a -- stevens that there was a secret war in their country. >> compartmentalized operations going on, so the c.i.a. personnel personnel didn't have any visibility and couldn't have known there would be some sort of retaliation or blowback from these operations. >> stevens was left in a lurch. regardless of the communication issue, the state department security posture was just not what it should have been. those guys in benghazi were screaming for increased security ask they didn't get the support from the state department. >> gretchen: there is validity, that would explain why there have not been that many forth coming answers regarding benghazi and why some of the documents have not been handed over to congress. if there is some covert activity going on, then they don't want that to come out. >> eric: this may go deeper if this is accurate. we have to wait and see.
4:35am
mr. brennan was raising his right hand last week testifying to a senate panel, there could be some issues with that. >> steve: absolutely. >> eric: there could be perjury issues with that as well. some of his testimony never outlined that when some of the questions asked if he knew anything about benghazi and he literally said no, we found out afterwards. so very interesting. he may have some issues. >> steve: usually with special operations, it's coordinated through the c.i.a. but they kept the c.i.a. in the dark and this book says they had a problem with petraeus and, in fact, they talk about how petraeus, the scandal involving that woman he had the affair with, was precipitated by some guys at the c.i.a. who did not like petraeus because he didn't like the nature of the direction the c.i.a. was going in. he's more paramilitary, they, the guys at the c.i.a., wanted analysis and stuff like that. so for this story, the benghazi, definitive report, that's this new ebook to suggest a secret
4:36am
war, secret operation being run out of the white house by brennan. that is stunning. >> gretchen: a fox news alert and developing story we've been following all morning. oscar pistorius we learned if he will be released on bail. amy kellogg live in london with the brand-new details. good morning to you. >> good morning. the magistrate in pretoria rule that had this case is going to be treated as premeditated murder and that means that it appears it's very unlikely that oscar pistorius will be freed on bail. now, the prosecution says that it was premeditated murder because actually he would have had to attach his prosthetic legs before walking seven yards to the bathroom where his girlfriend was holed up, locked in, cowhering after an argument in the wee hours of valentine's day. he fired four shots at the door, three hit her. pistorius in an affidavit said that he saw an intruder had climbed through the window of
4:37am
the bathroom. he also claims he kept a .9 millimeter pistol under his bed because he had received death threats in the past. he said that he was, quote, mortified by the death of his beloved reeva and also in this affidavit, said he had no intention to kill her and that he was deeply in love with her. in the meantime, the devastated family and friends of the late 29-year-old model, tv personality, and law school graduate held a memorial service for her today. the family described their grief and how they were trying to come to terms with their loss. >> there is this face -- space missing inside all the people she knew. we're going to keep all the positive things we remember and know about my sister and we will try and continue with the things that she tried to make better. we'll miss her. >> of course, people who have been following this story have probably read all sorts of even
4:38am
lurid details about what happened that night. many of them unconfirmed. but i think that it's fair to say that so much detail has been coming out in the press because south africa, this case will be judged by a judge and not a jury because south africa doesn't have a jury system. so that may be why there has been so much publication of details. this is a bail hearing. it's likely to go on for a few more days. that's what they're saying in pretoria. that's the latest. back to you in new york. >> gretchen: very interesting that they don't have a jury there. thanks very much. >> steve: we've got other headlines. 24 minutes before the top of the hour. president obama will receive israel's presidential medal of distinction when he goes through there to israel next month. president peres says he will be recognized for his contributions to strengthening the state of israel. it will be the first time president obama has visited israel since 2008 when he was running for president. president obama and benjamin netanyahu clashed over west bank settlements in the past and taking a stronger stance against
4:39am
iran. >> gretchen: more than 6,000 people now part of a petition urging the obama administration to downgrade its new metal for drone operators. the distinguished warfare medal honors drone pilots and others who haven't served on the battlefield. many veterans groups are outraged it's considered a higher honor than the bronze or purple heart. both of those recognize heroism on the field. >> eric: if off hot mail account, listen up. microsoft shutting down the e-mail service in favor of their new program, outlook.com. they've been testing their outlook service for the last six months, but it's now available for the public. microsoft says they have 60 million users so far, all hot mail users will be switched to outlook by summer. don't worry, if you have an account, you'll still be able to use your hot mail address and log in. >> steve: meanwhile, first it was bicycles, moshes, even snowmobiles. but now we can add vehicle -- is that an suv? yep, to the list of things that flip. a french stuntman completing the
4:40am
world's first suv back flip without a moving ramp and he stuck the landing. it happened in the french alps. the mini countryman was heavy hee modified for the trick. i guess that wasn't an suv. it looks more like -- is that a car? a maniy cooper? >> gretchen: wouldn't want to be the driver inside of that thing. >> steve: he is delighted. >> gretchen: he made it. no kidding. the other way around would not have been great news. let's check out our weather forecast for the rest of the week. maria molina is here for that. >> good morning, good to see you. today is a much warmer day across new york city. yesterday we were talking single digit wind chill temperatures during the morning hours. today we're almost going to make it to 50 degrees as we head into this afternoon and we are going to have rain to deal with. if you will any new york city or surrounding areas across the northeast, keep that in mind as we head into the afternoon. a little rain associated with this storm system here. the center of it is focused across portions of the great lakes with snow across portion of michigan, wisconsin, and
4:41am
areas of heavier rain down south. some areas of slippery travel where temperatures will be cold enough for snow or sleet will be areas across pennsylvania, parts of western virginia and north carolina. otherwise out west, a much larger and stronger storm system is starting to organize itself. this could dump as much as a foot of snow across some of these areas. temperatures again, mild across portions of the east. and will be across portions of the north central. bundle up if you live if parts of minneapolis and the dakotas. eric? >> thank you. the sports world is mourning the loss of a basketball legend this morning. jerry bus, the owner of the l.a. lakers has passed away. he had been hospitalized with cancer. he bought the team in 1979 and oversaw ten different title runs. tributes pouring in for a man who left a lasting legacy on how basketball is played. >> this is a man who was an innovator. trust me. we used to talk all the time and
4:42am
we talked about sports, but he also talked about entertainment. there was a team he wanted to see play a certain way, show time of the he wanted fun teams. >> eric: show time teams, of course, included magic johnson, and kareem abdul-jabbar. he was 80 years old. and danica patrick is the talk of the town after becoming the first female to win the pole in the daytona 500 on sunday. her new relationship with fellow rookie of the year contender rickey stenhouse, junior is making news off the track. heather caught up with them and put them to the test. >> what do you know about him? what's his favorite music? >> country. frees mississippi. it's country. >> what's your favorite music? >> country. >> his favorite food is fried food. no, no. it might be sugar. >> sugar. >> yeah. >> is that a food? >> what is your favorite food? >> candy. >> are you going to beat him on the track?
4:43am
>> rick gee clearly a talented driver, winning the last two nationwide championships. i think it's possible for sure. >> you're in contention for rookie of the year. possibly up against danica patrick, your girlfriend. how is that going? >> it's going good. i told her whoever wins, at least we both get to go to the banquet. >> eric: you can catch more of heather childress at the speedway this friday when she teams up with sprint unlimited second place finisher, mr. greg. >> steve: go ahead, honey, pass me. >> eric: i don't think so. >> gretchen: she might do it. coming up, the first lawsuits are being filed against carnival. do these people really have a case or are they just taking advantage of an unfortunate situation? peter johnson, jr. on that legal question next. >> steve: then how many drivers does it take to cause a traffic jam? the answer will have you seeing red.

eric? >> eric: all right. carnival cruise lines being hit with even more lawsuits filed by passengers trapped aboard one of brits broken ships last week. thousandses are stranded at sea without power or plumbing. the question is, do they have a case? joining us is fox news legal analyst, mr. peter johnson, jr. >> good morning. >> eric: good morning. can we just distinguish once you're at sea, it's different law than at port? >> most of these people have a chance of winning like a chance of completing the titanic cruise. they're not going to be winning these lawsuits. once you sign up for carnival or any of these cruise lines, you basically sign your life away. you agree in the ticket that you'll bring the lawsuit within a certain amount of time. if you don't, you're out of court. you'll bring it in a certain city. for carnival, miami. federal court. if you don't bring it there, you're out of court. you have to have a personal injury. you're out of court. you can't bring a lawsuit for inconvenience. plus there is a clause in the ticket contract that says they can basically go anywhere they
4:49am
want to go at any time once you're on the cruise ship and you have no remedies at all. so you need to have a bonafide, permanent, personal injury or illness that's caused as a result of their conduct. >> eric: let's listen to what the lawyer says for the second lawsuit that's been brought. this is attorneys quoting saying she was deprived, his client, deprived of the basic fundamental necessities of life and certainly not what one would expect on a luxury cruise ship. people were struggling to get water and food. >> i empathize. i know you do and we all do for those folks that were on the ship. it must have been an -- they described it in the lawsuit as a floating hell. but a floating hell is not necessarily a predicate for money damages. so if people think that this is an opportunity to get rich quick, or even get adequate compensation, i believe they should get adequate compensation. but when you look at their ticket, they signed it away for
4:50am
the price of the cruise. >> eric: it would make good business sense to give them compensation, but certainly not legal? >> they're giving them another ticket. they're giving them air fare home. they're giving them $500. they're giving them this and that. if i was on it, i'd probably never go back. i wouldn't think it was adequate compensation and when i saw the lawyer and the lawyer told me, oh, oh, mr. johnson, you gave it all away when you bought the ticket, i'd say, okay. i'm out of court. >> eric: we're out of time. thank you, sir. >> good to see you. >> eric: next, are you looking for a job? your search could end today. cheryl casone here with the top five companies hiring right now, but first on this date in 1990 "opposites attract" by none other than the one and only paula abdul with the number one song.

5:05am
the 74-page report says 141 major hacking attempts were traced back to a secret group that's linked to china's military. more than 100 of those attacks actually targeted u.s. corporations. those organizations included energy, aero space, i.t., telecommunications firms, things like blueprint, contact lists and other sensitive documents were stolen from those companies. the company says the hacking goes all the way back to 2006. there is also reportedly a memo from telecommunications company admitting that it provided communication links for the sole purpose of hacking. the "wall street journal" and the "new york times," you may remember this, in the last few weeks, they've admitted that both were hacked and they said all signs there pointed to chinese hackers. mandiant says it issued the report because it's time to acknowledge the threat originate not guilty china and we want to do our part to arm security professionals to combat that threat effectively. china, though, rejecting that
5:06am
report, denying that it's a military -- that the military has any involvement. they say it's based on groundless accuses. we've heard a lot about this from washington, republicans and democrats have been demanding more action on this issue. they say thatchy that's hackers pose a major security threat to the united states and our corporations, as you can imagine. eric, steve, and gretchen, we'll keep following this story. >> steve: let's bring in laura ingraham. she joins us live from our nation's capitol. according to i think i read in the "wall street journal" this morning, apparently that security firm traced back to the army headquarters in shanghai, 140 different attacks at various government and corporate entities right here in the united states. it's brilliant for a -- a great way for a former super power to bring this country to its knees. let's just do something with the power grid on the east coast. >> yeah. look, i've been having these conversations with friends of
5:07am
mine in the intel and the private security industry and places like intel, the company intel. and they've been telling me for years that when they're trying to track who is coming in to their system, who is trying to penetrate their system through back doors or created back doors, most of the attacks that they're seeing, they suspect are coming from either russia or china. some from places like iran as well. so beginning to work with the u.s. government, the nsa and other agencies because you don't really need to fire a shot anymore to bring down a country or at least to send it into chaos. imagine if we lost power in the united states, one big part of our country for seven days, eight days? even if you can paralyze us for a week, imagine what could happen in this country. >> eric: if they hacked into the air traffic control system, what they could do.
5:08am
they could bring the economy to its knees. >> exactly. it's pretty funny that the president, time and again, has said, well, we don't fear china's peaceful rise. i mean, china, of course is going to appear -- it's just looking out for china's best interest. when you're as rich as china is today, there is a lot of things you can do beyond just buying real estate in the big apple. >> gretchen: the question that is begged to be asked f china is doing this through their military, is it a good time for us to be cutting back then on our military spending to try and fight off things like this? >> well, no. it's not. and it's another reason why it would be best if all parties, all political parties and all political figures were in town actually gotting the job of putting this economy back together done. i mean, glad everyone is taking breaks and on vacation, but i mean, we got a real problem on our hands. we have several crises about to hit this country all at one time. we have things like the tuition
5:09am
debt bomb with all these kids with student loans defaulting. we have concerns about our debt and deficit. we have the sequester. we have this immigration issue being used for other issues that we might talk about today. it's amazing. the big coverage is whether obama beat tiger woods. meanwhile the chinese are moving quickly to try to do what they can to disarm us without a single shot. >> steve: what's interesting, we know a this country, laura, we're trying to take out the bad guys' computers thanks to some blabber mouths probably in the administration, before the election where the stuxnet was revealed and how iran, some blabber mouths have spilled a lot of beans regarding what we're doing. >> yeah. everybody knows countries are trying to exploit others' vulnerabilities. that's nothing new. but when it comes to a country like china that already exercises so much economic leverage over the united states, it's quite a different
5:10am
situation. so i think we all have to understand that there are real consequences to be paid for this country with the continuing lagging recovery and our debt, and especially with how much debt we owe to china. there is real consequences. this is one of the things that we're seeing play out. >> eric: change the topic a little bit, one of the dumbest things we've done in the past, i don't know, year or year in the half is sense f-16s to the middle east and talk about this a little bit. we just learned that drones, we're going to sell the united arab emirates some of our technology in the form of drones. a little too dangerous for your taste? >> well, look, it's okay as long as they're continuing to be somewhat friendly to us, right? the problem is, we don't really know what's going to happen in the next five or seven years in the middle east. and especially with all the money we sent to pakistan and look at what's happened with our relationship to pakistan. we've talked about this so many times on this program. so i have a lot of problems with
5:11am
the way we're using drones right now. i know some of our friends on fox don't, like charles krauthammer. but when we give that technology to the u.a.e., today they say they need it to act as a balanceast against other bad actors in the middle east. but tomorrow that same technology could be used perhaps against american interests abroad. that's what i'm most concerned about. >> gretchen: let's talk about something that could be near and dear to your and my heart because we are women. democratic colorado congressman -- i think he's a state representative -- he says call boxes and whistles are the best way for women to protect themselves against an attacker. listen to this, laura. >> we have call boxes. that's why we have safe zones. that's why we have the whistles. because you just don't know who you're going to be shooting at. you don't know if you feel like you're going to be raped or if you feel like someone has been following you around or if you feel like you're in trouble and
5:12am
when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop a round at somebody. >> oh, my gosh! >> gretchen: that's why that particular politician, laura, is not a woman. why should he speak for women? >> let's speak back to the richard murdoch scandal, the todd aiken murdoch, all the outrage about what they said. fine. but what about this! this guy, first of all, what is he going to -- is he going to shoot the attacker with? a squirt gun buried in the bow tie? i'm not sure what that was. >> gretchen: whistles don't even work with my kids. >> a man talking about how a woman can best defend herself. first of all, he can't even speak grammatically. he's talk being what could map with a man against a woman. why doesn't he try this first? when he's attacked by someone,
5:13am
probably 400 pounds, going up against him, when he's attacked, let's see him crawl to a call box. that's one of the most absurd things i've ever heard. the greatest equalizer is a gun in the hands of a woman who is well trained in its use. that's the greatest equalizer out there when it comes to crime against women. where are all the feminists? that's what i say. >> gretchen: we would like to mention that he did apologize. >> too bad. so did aiken. >> steve: in the last couple of weeks we've heard people in our government say, you know, if the schools take it over by somebody with a gun, find a stapler, ball point pen. >> eric: get under the desk. >> duct tape. >> steve: rather than that have security agents with guns in schools, find a stapler. >> eric: rubber bands. >> the good thing is they'll use all the windex spray, everyone will have that to squirt at the attackers. guys, there is a reason that the gun industry is one of the few growth industries during the
5:14am
obama recovery, okay? people are very worried about what this government is going to do, what state legislators and state legislatures are going to do to law-abiding citizens who have the god-given right to self-defense. that comment by that individual is beyond represencible. and for all the women listening, i don't care if you're republican or democrat, if you are vulnerable to an attack, and someone is coming at you and you are well trained at firearms use, you will have a much better chance of surviving, not being raped, and your children not being attacked as well. or hurt. and that man, that man should never work in politics again with that statement. it's an outrage. >> steve: that sound bite really get you reved up. >> it did. >> steve: take that sound bite. >> right to the radio. >> steve: run it on your radio show. kicks off 48 minutes from right now. have a great week. >> gretchen: speak of guns, should our politicians be putting gun control ahead of job creation? why the latest laws that limit laws are costing people their careers? >> eric: then the marines' new

5:18am
>> eric: when it comes to our politicians' priorities, which should come first? job creation or gun control? here in new york, state laws limiting guns often have an undesired side effect. they kill jobs. is that an acceptable loss? one town hit especially hard, where john stevens is the mayor, thank you for joining us. you have a remington plant? >> yes. >> eric: jobs in the plant is threatened because of what? >> the gun control, put out by governor cuomo. we have 1300 plus or minus
5:19am
employees in remington factory. those are in jeopardy if remington was to leave new york. >> eric: as well as other jobs as well. >> you look at the bigger effect, small mom and pop shops that might -- machine shop that might provide parts, there families could be affected. the gas stations, the delis, pizza shops will be affected. >> eric: could be more than just the 1300. >> absolutely. yeah. it could be in the thousands. >> eric: how long has remington been there? >> since 1816. 197 years. >> eric: what does governor cuomo say? >> i have not had a response as of yet. i'm not optimistic. i will. but i have invited him to come to tutor factory. so far nothing. >> eric: there are other states that say they would welcome the 1300 employees at remington. south carolina, arizona, kentucky, michigan, oklahoma and texas. what do you say to them?
5:20am
>> that doesn't make me happy. look, if remington was to have approached them, that's a different story. but to come and solicit a factory, a manufacturing firm in new york state which we all know is not the easiest place to do business, that's a line i don't think they should have crossed. it upsets me quite a bit. >> eric: give him the camera. talk to governor cuomo for a second. >> governor, i've sent you a letter. i invite you to come to ilian, new york and tour the remington factory. i invite you to see how much of a hard working blue collar class that we are in the village of ilian and hope to hear from you soon. i really do. >> gretchen: thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> eric: they tout for our country by remote control. so should drone operators receive an honor higher than the bronze medal? we have an update to this story. then, do you take the time to read the calorie counts on menus? our next guest says you shouldn't because they're all wrong. be right back.

5:25am
good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: let's talk about what you looked at. you looked at grandpa's original yogurt muffin. starbucks grand coffee, then a chipotle burrito. you had a tofu sandwich. and then you had a subway 6 turkey sandwich. by law here in new york, they've got to put up the number of calories. right? >> that's right. here in new york and a couple other places armed the country, and soon with obamacare, it will be everywhere across the country, if your franchise has more than 20 outlets, you have to post the calorie information. >> steve: ed idea is, people need to know how many calories they're putting in their body? >> it's a way of empowering you as a consumer, to know what you're eating. >> steve: sure. so what did you was you went to the five different locations. you bought the stuff and then what did you do? >> yes. soy picked five items that i thought might make autopsy daily food intake. i worked with a couple of food scientists at the st. luke's obesity research lab here in new york. >> steve: they know what they're
5:26am
doing? >> they know what they're doing. we tested these using maybe the most -- one of the most accurate means of testing food calories. >> steve: all right. and so let's talk a little bit about what you found. it's interesting, the numbers were close in most cases, with the exception of the tofu sandwich? >> yeah. if we start with chipotle. that's a big meal. they stated it had 1175 calories. >> steve: all right. >> our test came back with 1295 calories. >> steve: it had more calories. >> it's a big discrepancy. but in their defense, it's 10%, the sandwiches are made by hand. i can accept that. >> steve: sure. when it comes to the starbucks beverage? >> same situation. it was over by 20 calories, i think. 22 calories. made by hand, same sort of exception. >> steve: with the much? >> the muffins are different. they are made somewhere. they're not made by hand in a restaurant. those are labeled the way the
5:27am
f.d.a. requires them to be labeled. that muffin right there, which is a yogurt muffin, had -- they said it had 640 calories. it had 735 calories. >> steve: oh, my goodness. finally, the sandwich from subway actually had fewer calories than were posted. >> going into it, i thought subway would be the bad guy. then they're the only ones that came in under. the same thing when i spoke with subway, they're the only company that tested the same way we test. >> steve: with the tofu sandwich, that was couple hundred calories? >> a little more than double. in their defense, the company said they're going to test again and if their results are the same as ours o'clock they'll change their label. >> steve: so now this is the important thing for people to understand, while it may be off 20 calories or 100 or 200, through the course of the day, and that's what you're trying to do, was figure out how many calories a person consumes in a day, essentially they were off by so many calories, it can
5:28am
really impact your weight. >> sure. that was the summation of this video. at the end of the day, we didn't test multiple subjects. but if this was your intake for the day, you'd be eating over 500 calories more. that's almost a big mac more, or two doughnuts more. >> steve: exactly right. knowledge is power. he did a film for the "new york times," it's called "calorie detective, the real math behind food labels" if you want to check it out. >> thank you lot. >> steve: 26 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, a new way to sweep the streets of the mentally ill. there is even a list of the most wanted. is that a good idea? is it perhaps illegal? we're going to talk about that. then the marines' new mascot is ready to report for duty. but now there is word he may get fired before his first day on the job. semper fido

5:33am
>> gretchen: that's how i looked at one week pregnant. the duchess, four months pregnant, stepped out for her first official engagement of the new year. it's not known whether the royal baby is a boy or girl. but it doesn't matter because they signed that new law that either one will be the next heir to the throne. the baby due in july. i hope she gets more of a baby bump as she moves forward. >> steve: i got a feeling she will. >> gretchen: yes. >> steve: all right. meanwhile, let's tell but this. we've told you in the past about how a month or so ago there were a couple of unfortunate circumstances where some mentally unbalanced people pushed innocent bystanders into the path of subway trains. two people were killed. that's one of the people who did it. that's the other person. now apparently the health department along with the police, have drawn up a list of the 25 who they suspect are the most problematic mentally unbalanced people in the city of new york city and what they're going to do, because they have been ordered bay court to take
5:34am
certain medications and they're not, they're going to sweep them up. they're going to take them into custody. >> gretchen: i know that some people will say this is unconstitutional, including the judge who we interviewed, but i think the mental illness is a huge problem in this society. we're not dealing with it in the most effective ways with regard to medication. you really cannot force somebody who is mentally ill to take their medications and unfortunately, many crimes do occur as a result, if they have a violent streak. >> steve: if the court orders them to take the medication, i was talking to the judge afterwards, and he said, and they don't, that would be a violation. that would be contempt of court essentially. so the judge says in that case, it's a gray area. otherwise if they're just stopping people who look unbalanced, he says that could be unconstitutional. >> eric: we want to hear the judge. there could be up to -- i'm sorry. was that the judge? >> gretchen: that's okay.
5:35am
go ahead. >> because the constitution says the only way you can arrest someone is if you see them committing a crime or have probable cause to believe they have committed. not are going to commit, but have committed a crime. only those who are mentally ill and are in imminent danger of harm to themselves and others can be in a category of candidates for arrest. but a cop looking at somebody on a subway saying i think you're crazy, i think you're going to push somebody into the path of the subway train and therefore, i'm going to arrest you, that's not permissible under our system. >> gretchen: problem is, you don't know what the imminent threat is. you don't know how that will display it's self. the caveat is also that the governor here, governor cuomo, apparently looking to sign legislation that would release some mentally ill people who are currently in group homes back to the streets potentially. that's where some of them will end up. so that's why this is becoming an even bigger problem than it has been in the past.
5:36am
>> eric: we're showing 25 of the most mentally ill, i guess. but there could be up to 11,000, over 33,000 homeless people that may have some form of mental illness. >> steve: right now they're starting with the list. 26 minutes before the top of the hour. a developing story we've been following all morning long. judge suspending the bail period for oscar pistorius until tomorrow. what does that mean today? anna kooiman is following and joins us with details. >> good morning. it's believed that oscar pistorius will likely remain behind bars until trial. earlier this morning, a judge charging him with the premeditated murder of his model girlfriend, the 26-year-old sobbed in the courtroom as prosecutors described how they say he killed her in his own home. they say he armed himself, then attached his prosthetic leg before shooting her, who had come to spend the night. he then allegedly fired at her four times through the bathroom
5:37am
door. she was hit three times. meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, reeva was laid to rest in an emotional and very private ceremony. >> this morning, indicated that we are to keep reeva in our hearts forever and by her passing away, it's actually can make a change in the lives of many people. >> it asks for sponsors, oakley suspended its contract with pistorius. nike says it has no plans to use him in future ad campaigns. pistorius could also lose his olympic medals if evidence is given during his trial showing he was taking steroids before or during the london games. police did find the banned drugs in a recent search of his home. back to you. >> steve: anna kooiman, thank you very much. >> gretchen: now to the other
5:38am
headlines for your tuesday. can you imagine having your home searched by the sheriff and you haven't committed a crime? it might be hard to believe, but that proposal is in a new gun control bill introduced in washington state. it allows the sheriff to enter your home and determine whether or not your assault rifle is properly stored. gun rights advocates outraged over the idea of police going door to door to check on legal gun owners. supporters of the bill say they didn't realize that that provision was in the bill. >> eric: and we're getting first look at the engine room where a fire started that crippled the carnival triumph. investigators just revealing it was a leak in the fuel line that sparked the flames. so far two people have filed suit against carnival, including one woman who claims she suffered severe dehydration and bruising from passengers while in the long food lines. >> steve: meanwhile, peterson could be sentenced for murdering his third wife. but first his attorneys are going to fight for a new trial. they will argue that peterson's former lawyer did such a lousy job during his trial last year,
5:39am
it led to his conviction. if a new trial is denied, sentencing will be next. peterson faces up to 60 years behind bars. >> gretchen: he's ready to report for duty. look how cute he is. not so fast. chesty is in line to become the marine corps' newest mascot. they have had a lot of chesties. had is the latest. first, he has to go through boot camp. >> if he doesn't do what he needs to between now and the end of march, then we'll find somebody else. >> gretchen: oh, my gosh! what? what? >> my money is on this dog. >> gretchen: did you hear that, chesty? >> my money is on this dog. >> gretchen: poor chesty. if he makes it, he'll become private first class chesty the 14th. named after chesty puller, one of the most decorated combat marines in history. i have to say that the captain left the headline out of that interview 'til the very end where he said the top dog may not be the top dog. after all, if he doesn't cut it, he's out.
5:40am
>> steve: i got that line. maria molina reporting for duty. she's been outside all morning long and there she is at 48th street right here in midtown, manhattan. >> eric: yeah. thankfully today is much warmer morning than yesterday. yesterday our wind chill temperatures at this hour were in 6 degrees. in the single digits and today about 20 degrees warmer than it was yesterday morning. so looking much better. your high temperature in new york city today should be 45 degrees. that's pretty much the story across most of the northeast, even florida. much warmer today. 76 for a high temperature in tampa. where it's very cold today is across portions of the midwest. minneapolis, three degrees for your high temperature. then you factor in the wind and wind chill temperatures right now at the moment across portions of the north central are very cold. it feels like 36 degrees below 0 in north dakota. feels like 36 degrees as william below 0 in the city of fargo.
5:41am
you really got to bundle up across this area. we're talking dangerously cold wind chill temperatures. now, by so mild across the east, it's 'cause we have a frontal system that's headed eastbound ahead of the system. winds out of the south. today you should be getting rain across the new york city area. later this afternoon. some areas across the interior northeast will be cold enough that you will be seeing a bit of a wintery mix. so we could be looking at slippery driving conditions across portions of central pennsylvania, upstate new york. keep that in mind as we head to work this morning. >> eric: thank you. dan at that patrick is the talk of the town after becoming the first female to win the pole in the daytona 500 qualifier on sunday. her new relationship with fellow rookie of the year contender rickey stenhouse, junior is also making headlines off the track. heather caught up with them at day toe madhur media day. she put them to the test. >> what do you know about him? like what's his favorite music? >> what's his favorite music is

>> gretchen: that competition not only keeps us keen in sports burks in cut throat work environments like wall street as well. >> eric: so what would happen if women infiltrated the industry that's currently dominated by men? ashley is the co-author of "top dog, the science of winning and losing." okay. so gretchen, you want to take this. i'm going to sit here and refute all this. >> gretchen: okay. one of the examples that you used in your book was -- talked about men and women and how they assess risk. what did you find out? >> on wall street, like you were saying, a researcher at the university of texas, who spent 23 years of financial analyst reports and found women were 7.3% more accurate than the men in terms of what companies were going to make more money in the next quarter. >> gretchen: why? >> well, i think that's about taking risks and women tend to be a little underconfident. they're trying to figure out all of the facts that understand what's going on of the men are
5:48am
bullish. more overconfident. they're sure it will be fine. they're going tone courage going for it where the women are more cautious. >> eric: let me throw it out here. women are better at analyzing it, but you throw -- when it goes to actually taking the risk, men are better at taking the actual risk? >> men are more willing on average to go into the competition because they're looking at what they're going to win. and the women are really focused on the odds of success. think about powerball, right? if you think about powerball, hey, i'm gog win 195 million, you buy the ticket. if you think, my odds are one in 195 million, you're not. >> gretchen: that's your second category. winning versus not lose. you're pointing out what you see as a difference between women and more. women are more like three take the chance if they see a 20% chance of a positive outcome? >> well, in research that they've done in terms of women running for office, they found that men, they're in it, just give them the idea. but women are looking, it has to start at at least 20%. but a 50/50 shot, now women are
5:49am
saying yes. if less than that, they don't see a reason. >> eric: tell us about warriors versus worriers. >> that relates to a genetic predisposition for how we respond to stress. there is a gene that changes how we -- how fast we recycle dopamine. stress creates dopamine. so having too much of one of it makes you sort of panic under stress. whereas the warriors actually aren't as excited under normal circumstances. but stress is when they perform the best because that's when their brains are really at opt minimum. >> gretchen: can you put male and female in either of those categories? >> they're both male and female warriors and worriers. you can actually be a navy seal warrior with a worrier gene. it's how you compete and what experiences you're going to go forward with. it's where you're going with that. >> eric: could you break down who are better drivers?
5:50am
>> no, we did not. although i love research about parking spots. research has found it's not your imagination, people really do wait longer to leave the space if they know you're waiting for them. >> gretchen: oh, my gosh! i'm glad to end on that note because that would be a female or a male characteristic. >> it is. >> gretchen: it's a very fascinating book. ashley is the co-author of this. one thing for sure, both eric and i like to win. >> eric: yeah. >> gretchen: so we also have that in common. i'm sure you do as well. thanks so much for your time. >> thank you. >> eric: one of history's greatest mysteries is about to be turned upside down. a famous death once called a suicide may have been murder instead. our next guest claims she's got proof. >> gretchen: first let's check in with mar this mccallum. >> very interesting segment. good morning. so coming up on "america's newsroom," oscar pistorius has just told his side of the story of that night for the first

well-rounded producer, director, screen writer and actor like his father, michael jackson. >> eric: all right. for more than 2,000 years, we thought egyptian queen cleopatra ended her on life. >> gretchen: now a new book is blowing the lid off that belief. the pharaoh has been murdered. pat brown is a criminal copilot and author of "the murder of cleopatra." she joins us live from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> gretchen: so this is a fascinating topic. how does somebody become interested? i understand you were doing some studying on this you and thought, wow, there is more to this story than people know. >> actually i did the discovery channel show called "the mysterious death of cleopatra" in 2004. i said it doesn't hold water. it's one of these crazy stories that i really don't know why we believed it for all these years. but no one really stopped and analyzed all the details. then i said, wait a minute, i

also think she was murdered, but during that particular show, i never got time to go into why. i never got to go into what cleopatra was really doing in alexander before she got murdered. i believe she was trying to escape with her ships and she wasn't hiding and cowering in her tomb hopeless. >> steve: of course, through history, we thought that she was done in by a self-inflicted asp wound to the torso. but what's your evidence that someone was out to get her? >> octavian, i do not think he wanted to take her back to rome. she was a very difficult person to deal with. one of these shaky situations where you never know what could be wrong. he would rather just have her disappear because you keep her alive, you never know when she's going to come back and bite you. so the fact is, he wanted her dead, but to go and say, by the way, the folks got volatile, i killed off your queen. not a great story.

so to have her commit suicide served his purposes quite well and i'm sure he put out that story about the snake and if you actually look into the details which people can do in my book, there is really no logic to the fact that a snake would have been able to be used and be in that tomb. nobody even saw the stupid thing. >> eric: you're just going on logic, though, right? >> no, no. >> gretchen: she has proof. >> no, no. first of all, we have the history of plutar, which is questionable. but he has interesting information. but i went back to egypt to do my research. i researched the architecture. i researched the geography and the politics. there is a lot of information that goes into building analysis. it's not just one idea that oh, she wouldn't have done that. there is a lot of pieces that go to the puzzle and i build this up in the book, all the different parts of her life, what she was really doing, how she was trying to flee egypt, even in the last days. there is so much in there. but i think we're going to see a completely different story once they read the book. >> gretchen: i know. we've run out of time, but i
5:58am
wanted to get your take on how you think this would change history, but i'm undoubtedly out of time. check out her book. a good title. good luck. >> thanks a lot. >> gretchen: for "fox & friends" three minutes away. stick around by the armful? by the barrelful? e carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. . ... how do you keep an older car running like new? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you that you need your oil changed you got to bring it in. if your tires need to be rotated, you have to get that done as well. jackie, tell me why somebody should bring they're car here to the ford dealership for service instead of any one of those other places out there.

they are going to take care of my car because this is where it came from. price is right no problem, they make you feel like you're a family. get a synthetic blend oil change, tire rotation and much more, $29.95 after $10.00 rebate. if you take care of your car your car will take care of you. a talking car. but i'll tell you what impresses me. a talking train. this ge locomotive can tell you exactly where it is,
